Where did this idea come from? What crazy person thought that after the house was closed up all winter we should open all the windows and doors and clean every last speck of dirt and dust from the home? Logically, when you open the windows and doors, doesn't all the dust and pollen from the outside come in? Tuesday I mopped my floors and dusted the living room/dining room. It looked pretty - it sparkled. By Wednesday morning it looked like a tornado had blown through. My kids played outside and brought in the dirt on their shoes. My youngest ate dinner and breakfast and my dog has gotten picky. Mitzi won't eaten cheerios or Gerber's puffs anymore. I'm pretty sure that Jeffrey doesn't have anymore toys IN his room! So back to my original question: what purpose does Spring Cleaning serve? Can we just skip this and go to Summer where we just live in our bathing suits and eat outside???
